Add to Calendar Europe/Paris How To Think About God: An Ancient Guide For Believers and Nonbelievers

Most ancient Romans were deeply religious and their world was overflowing with gods – from Jupiter, Minerva, and Mars to countless local divinities, household gods, and ancestral spirits. One of the most influential Roman perspectives on religion came from a nonreligious belief system that is finding new adherents even today: Stoicism. How did the Stoics think about religion? In this book, Philip Freeman presents vivid new translations of Cicero’s ‘On the Nature of the Gods’ and ‘The Dream of Scipio’. In these brief works, Cicero offers a Stoic view of belief, divinity, and human immortality, giving eloquent expression to the religious ideas of one of the most popular schools of Roman and Greek philosophy.
